Potential passengers may be interested to read the note on their site:

Be aware that we change our schedules regularly in order to adapt to the needs of our clients and to meet the current demand for departures.

This could be taken as an indication that they do not intend to launch all 12 of these routes, and will instead take bookings and decide which routes to axe (if demand is insufficient), maybe before they have even started. This was certainly a strategy employed by other emerging European low-cost airlines – for example Wizz Air.
